Freya Flamingo Bikini TopFreya makes floral prints funky with this Flamingo bikini top.

Its name is a bit confusing, as there's not a flamingo to be seen. Not even a lone pink feather graces this swim top. Instead we get a vibrant posy of poppies and sunflowers decorating the bust. The bold colored print clashes delightfully with the black and white spotted trim. It's a risky choice, and one that probably won't please traditionalists, but I think the contrasting patterns look really fresh.

The Flamingo does a great job of flattering curves. The bust is lightly padded with underwire underneath for extra support and lift. The halter-neck style always makes bodies look their best, but no one minds an extra boost! There's also some light boning in the side seams, which while not comfortable helps to create a smooth, streamlined silhouette.

It's interesting to see the tie coming from between the cups, rather than the sides. I really like the modern edge it gives the design, but I'm not sure how it'll work in the water. The styling doesn't seem as secure as the traditional configuration. Perhaps this is a bikini best suited for paddling and sunbathing, rather than taking on big waves. And if you are sunbathing, remember to remove the tie for a line-free tan.

This is a style that would look great on any body type, so it's a bit disappointing to see the smallest cup size is a D. Freya's always aimed to provide pretty lingerie and swimwear for the oft neglected curviest women, but it leaves the rest of us out in the cold. Perhaps a sister line with the same styles for petite girls is in order!
